A place predominantly selling services. These may range from the obvious services such as accountants and lawyers. Since the list of values can be potentially very large you are free to create your own, better using English UK when possible (OSM convention). Please use the singular form, e.g., lawyer not lawyers, unless that breaks English grammar. For international ease of rendering and searching, a small global core set is being developed below.

shop=office - If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag. Automated edits are strongly discouraged unless you really know what you are doing!
